left the canal at 4pm on a flat calm bay! Got to our location in 18 Ft of water and started to soak the clams. Not much going on till the wind started blowing around sunset. Had great marks and waited it out. Wind started honking just as the bite turned on. Had my friend and our two 10 yr old sons with us. First solid hookup went to my son and after a great battle we put a 41" striper in the box! Next hookup went to my friends son and he landed a small drum. As that was going on we hooked two others and boated another drum. The wind kept coming and the conditions were not safe for the kids anymore. We left them biting for another day. Fishing is red hot right now....if you can get out there go for it!!!!!
